WBT welcomes back an old favourite with a fresh new look – Robinson Soldering Irons.
It may seem like a modern invention, but historical records show that even the goldsmiths of ancient Egypt knew how to join gold more than 5,000 years ago. Since then, we’ve seen continuous development and improvement of soldering technology.
When it comes to soldering, one of the keys to success is having the right tools for the job at hand. With many soldering irons on the market in a variety of shapes and sizes, selecting the right one is not always easy. Assessing the numerous features – size, wattage/power consumption, voltage, method of temperature control, type of stand and general maintenance and care – can be a time-consuming activity.
Warren and Brown Tools (WBT) are pleased to welcome back to the family the Robinson Soldering Irons. Robinson Soldering Irons are the ideal tool for almost any soldering job and are renowned for their quality, reliability and craftsmanship. WBT have been working on some new improvements behind the scenes, with a new plastic impact resistant handle providing electrical and thermal insulation, along with an on/ off switch for safety requirements and electrical approval V99045.
Wattage is one of the most important factors to consider as it determines the available heating power, heating time and temperature regulation. The smaller size soldering irons are more suited to fine work, while larger models are more suited to solder items that are less delicate. The Robinson Soldering Irons are available in a wide range of wattage and sizes from 80W all the way up to 500W, so you can be sure there’s an iron available that will suit the requirements of your next soldering job.
Soldering provides reasonably permanent but reversible connections between joints in sheet metal objects such as automobile radiators. For instance, the 100W Robinson Soldering Iron features a pyramid style tip which is ideal for automotive use. Featuring a stainless steel barrel and balanced weight to aid prolonged use, the Robinson Soldering Irons will become an essential instrument for any comprehensive tool box.
Another thing to consider, is the soldering iron tips used in soldering – they have a limited life, and while the rest of the iron may work for many years, it’s necessary to change out the tips at regular intervals. It’s essential that these spare parts are readily available, and WBT are committed to keeping these in their extensive range of products.
Along with the Robinson Soldering Irons, WBT has a full range of soldering products and accessories to suit any application.
